In her wide-ranging practice, Swiss designer Julia Born explores new ways of engaging with textual and visual material on the printed page and in the exhibition site. She has works in close dialogue with artists, such as Uta Eisenreich, Shannon Ebner, Moyra Davey, Michael Auder, and Wendelien van Oldenborgh, to translate content—photography, film, and speech—into the book form. She creates structure for ideas and images, while simultaneously making material comprehensible and pushing other pathways for interpreting it. Her field of design research proposes different forms of reading content through the careful selection and sequencing of images, blank spaces, and writing.
Born will present a selection of publications and exhibitions during a talk at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts’ Curatorial Research Bureau, within the context of how she formulates new narratives responsive to the conceptual, formal and material conditions present.
This event is organized in partnership with CCA MFA Design and swissnex San Francisco, with support from Pro Helvetia.
